Robin

Director

I joined the Whaley office in 2010 after doing a degree in Classical Literature and Civilisation at the University of Birmingham. After completing AAT, I’ve moved into managing the Whaley Office and hope to continue to grow the business for many years to come.

In my spare time, I love having fun with my 2 girls and wife. I’m completely obsessed with running and love doing anything from a park run to an ultramarathon. I’ve also played the guitar for 20 years, for many of which I dreamed of becoming famous.
